I was born in Madrid and raised in San Fernando de Henares. I started my Telecommunications Engineering studies in 1994 at ETSI Telecomunicacion, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. During my studies, I worked in several companies as a part-time internship (De La Rue Cash Systems, RYMSA and Telefonica R&D). I finished my studies in 2001, while I was already working at the Spanish mobile operator Amena (now known as Orange).
I finished my PhD in 2007 in Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM), Spain. From 2011, I am an Associate Professor at the UAM. I am a member of the Audias Group (Audio, Data Intelligence And Speech). I had the opportunity to visit several research laboratories and institutions around the world, including the Institute of Scientific Police at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland), the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland), the Electrical Engineering school at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa), and the Netherlands Forensic Institute. I have recently co-led an initiative for the scientific validation of evidence evaluation methods.
My research interests are focused on forensic evaluation of the evidence using Bayesian techniques; validation of forensic evaluation methods; and speech, audio and signal processing. I am actively involved in several projects focused on different aspects of forensic science and signal processing. I have received several distinctions and awards, and I am author of multiple publications in national and international journals and conferences. I am regularly a member of scientific committees in different international conferences, and I am often invited to give talks in conferences and institutions.
